As part of the worldwide movement of social innovation, The CEO SleepOut™ has spread its message to all corners of the globe.
Throughout South Africa, the movement challenges C-Suite members, Influencers and Decision Makers to Rise To The Challenge and spend a winter’s night on the streets, raising funds and collecting necessary items for various appointed beneficiaries.
The Event is equally focused on encouraging Participants to empathise with vulnerable communities, as this is where a truly philanthropic mindset begins, which then leads to continuous, sustainable social change.
The South African showcase of The SleepOut™ Events is considered to be the most successful overnight philanthropic venture on the African continent and rose far beyond international counterparts.
In addition to this, South Africa developed its own unique additions to The SleepOut™ Events, such as The Sympathy SleepOut™, The South Africa SleepOut™, The Student SleepOut™ and The School SleepOut™.
These Satellite Events see businesses, students, schools and all other interested South African citizens also spend a night outdoors at their office parks, universities, school grounds and preferred locations of choice in order to collect items for satellite beneficiaries in need.
The time has come for those in positions of influence to stand up and commit to creating sustainable positive change for everyone – and to compel others to do the same.
